My problem/question if I have created the fxt-files my self (tick-data
of Ducaskopy, GMT) I want to be sure that they are not mixed with the prices (and the broker-timeshift) of the broker I am logged in!
If I test an EA in the mt4-strategy-tester I can get the quotes: Bid, Ask, High, iHigh(NULL,0,0), ..
I think these data are taken from the fxt-file in
the tester-history-folder of the chosen Symbol and Timeframe.
But if I use additionally other time-frames (e.g. H1,H4,D1 with only op,hi,lo,cl of the bars) are the prices
a) taken from a (created if not existing) fxt-file of this different timeframes in the tester-history-folder or
b) directly taken from the equivalent hst-file of the terminal-folder\history\Broker\EURUSD1440.hst?
Thanks in advance,
I would generate other timeframes on-the-fly from the fxt in use. No need to save them into an hst, keeping a few candles in memory should suffice for the purpose. The implementation does not seem to be a piece of cake, so I would not bother until I really needed it.
